Blue Jays unveil first round of Rogers Center renovations

Today the Toronto Blue Jays unveiled the first round of Rogers Center renovationsfeaturing a new Outfield District intended to transform the fan experience at the 34-year-old ballpark, as well as behind-the-scenes improvements for players.

The event today for the press comes five days until the 2023 Home Openers on April 11. The Outfield District improvements, featuring five distinct neighborhoods and new social spaces, are available to all fans. The new Outfield District is part of a multi-year $300 million privately funded renovation that will be completed between 2024 and 2025.

The Blue Jays began the first phase of renovation construction on October 14, 2022, with PCL Construction. The structural demolition took 35 days and approximately 21,000 worker hours, with the new build beginning on November 14, 2022. The result is a dramatically different Rogers Center experience; a little less brutalist and a lot more colorful. Designed with Popular, the new Outfield District features social spaces to gather with friends and get closer to the action; live entertainment off the field; and food and beverage menus that reflect the city of Toronto.

“We have the unique privilege of representing a dynamic city and have reflected that energy in the reimagined ballpark,” said Mark Shapiro, Blue Jays President & CEO, via press release. “We are extremely excited to debut these spaces to both lifelong and new Blue Jays fans.”

“Rogers Center is home to Canada’s baseball team, and I’m delighted to see the first phase of this renovation project come to life for Blue Jays fans,” said Edward RogersChair of the Toronto Blue Jays and Chair of Rogers, via press release . “We’re proud of the team and we’re proud to invest in the ballpark, a landmark in the heart of downtown Toronto.”

“We’re deeply committed to supporting the team and to delivering the best fan experience both on and off the field,” said Tony Staffieri, President and CEO, Rogers, via press release. “These renovations will bring the heart of the city into the ballpark and create a sense of community for fans attending the game.”
